2020-02 AAG submission MRFF Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Mission
The Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Mission is a research program that is investing $185 million from 2018–19 to 2028–29. It aims to support older Australians to maintain their health and quality of life as they age, live independently for longer, and access quality care when they need it. The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) funds the mission.
The Dementia, Ageing and Aged Care Mission Expert Advisory Panel is developing advice for mission priorities and has drafted a roadmap for the mission. Public consultation on the roadmap closed on 17 February 2020. The Expert Advisory Panel will consider feedback from the consultation and provide advice to the Minister for Health.
